Robin Powell talks to Ben Johnson, Director of Global ETF Research at Morningstar. Ben discusses the development of Morningstar's Active/ Passive Barometer and explains what it tells us. He talks about the importance of cost, the relative merits of ETFs and traditional index funds, and how, in his view, the term "index" has effectively become meaningless and is often a front for active strategies. He also explains why talk of passive investing undermining the smooth running of the markets is overblown. He then touches on corporate governance and why, in his view, passive portfolio managers are better placed than their active counterparts to hold company boards to account.
